and a lot of people think win or lose for obama, a possible presidential candidate for the democrats in 2016 against kelly ayotte, one of the rising stars in the republican party, the senator from the key swing state of new hampshire, and then we're going to have a debate guru, bret o'donnell, may not have heard of him, but seen his work, one of the campaign debate coaches for 2004 and mccain in 2008. and mitt romney before the florida primary, florida debate, obliterated newt gingrich and we'll get him to give tricks of the trade, what they do right or wrong and what they need to do differently next time. >> very good. tune into fox news sunday, thanks, chris. >> thanks, cries. >> clayton: coming up on the show, speaking of paul ryan, one voter asked him to be more specific with his plans. >> i heard you, was it sunday when you were on fox, and you didn't answer his question about how we're going to-- you know, what are your plans. >> yeah, no, look-- >> she says her words have now been twisted by the obama administration and she's here to set the record state. >> peter: then a scarlet lett
the last presidential -- the first presidential debate. obama now at 45%, romney at 49%. that's a significant shift from before the debate when the president was ahead by eight points, 51% to 43%. but let's dig a little bit deeper right now. this question, all likely voters who were asked answered, obama doesn't know how to turn the economy around, do you agree or disagree? 54% said they agree with that. 44% they say disagree. that sounds like trouble for the president's reelection campaign. >> that does. that number -- first of all, the top-line numbers are surprising because i believe pew has been a pr pre-pro obama poll. pew's been pretty good for obama. the top-line numbers are really surprising. have to see if other polls show the same thing. but as you point out, that's the key number, the economy. how does obama get out of this box of voters being not happy with the economy? but up until now, willing to perhaps give him another chance. i'm surprised. i'm surprised the debate turned things around, if they indeed have, that quickly. obama has two more debates to turn thin
, as mitt romney prepares to debate president obama in the presidential debate, and give advice on what undecided voters want to hear. and tough questions for the republican challenger. and for the president, is the mainstream media tipping the scales toward the left? pat buchanan speaks out. plus, corruption, crime, chaos, documentary phil make -- film maker says it's business as usual at the united nations. >> ladies and gentlemen, governor mike huckabee. [applause] >> hello, everybody, thank you. great group of folks we have here and welcome to huckabee from the fox news studios in new york city. all right, last week on this show, i told you that your government had lied to you about the attacks in egypt and libya when they claimed they were just acts of a spontaneous mob in reaction it a youtube video. i said then and i repeat now, i normally would not have used such strong language and made such a bold declaration, but the continuing revelations confirmed that my statement was not an exaggeration. our government had lied to us, and they did it knowingly. our ambassador to libya is
happened last night. when mitt romney beat president obama in last night's televised debate. so the first televised presidential debate that we had was in 1960. here are all of the other years that we have since have televised presidential debates. every four years now we have these debates on tv. the only years, though, so these are all the years, right, right? the only years, though, in which you had an incumbent president running against a challenger in all of the years we've had presidential debates on tv are these years. so in terms of understanding the historical context of what happened last night when mitt romney beat president obama in this first debate, this is the universe of like things to compare it to. this is how to understand it in terms of american political history. it's only these years right here. that's it. now, by definition, you never have an incumbent president in this situation more than once. presidents can only serve two terms so there's only one opportunity when they carry into that debate, when they're running for re-election, they carry into that debate the g
. >> president obama and republican challenger mitt romney is going to be facing off for their first presidential debate. for undecided voters style might matter over substance. how a candidate might say something may have more impact than what he says. what does mitt romney need to say to get an edge with some of the voters. he prepared john mccain four years and ago and also worked with mitt romney. brett welcome to the show. it's to have you here. [ applause ] what would you say mitt romney has to do more than anything else in order to go into that debate and come out the winner? >> at the top of the list has to be governor romney has to tie the poor economic conditions we find ourselves in right now to the failure of the president's policies. he has to be able to litigate and make the case that the policies the president has put forward have caused the economy to continue to go down. folks believe the economy is bad right now but what they don't actually believe is it is the president's fault. he has to make that case in the debate with the president standing on the stage with him that the pr
three more debates, one vice-presidential, two presidential debates. the day after the debate, we see a very animated and almost angry barack obama, pretty much calling mitt romney, a liar. what do we expect as we move forward? desperation? do they overreak to the bad performance? >> well, i don't think they are overreaking. but they are -- they are desperate. what else can they possibly say? look, here was the one time when the two adversaries are out there, unfiltered by the media, which had been so in the tank to obama that they have snorkelling gear. everybody sought saw it. it was very straight. the moderator had no control, which is exactly the way it should be. he shouldn't be in the way. and it was no contest. it was no loss. they can only say that the other guy won because he was lying. in fact, the reason romney won was because he had the audacity in the first five minutes to go after the two central falsehoods are all the ads that obama has been running incessantly in ohio with great effect. the romney negatives are the highest of any challenger since that same walter monda
was smart not to do that -- he wants to look presidential. he doesn't want his fingerprints on petty and going after someone. i think it is same is true of governor romney, vis-a-vis president obama. they can flood the market with the super pacs. >> exactly, exactly. if the president goes at the 47% and bain capital and the tax returns, it diminishes the president and it reduces him from the presidential level. and it makes him look petty and it makes hymn him look not like his greatest asset is that people say he's a nice guy who has been doing his best. he gets into that mode and he risks his most priceless asset. but brit hume's point. he has a tough, almost impossible record to defend, i mean, in terms of was it a good economy? it's been the worst economy we have had in the lifetime of most american and it is numbers are there. so how does he defend it if romney keeps smiling and going after him? >> greta: he has to communicate to the voters and talk to them. i think that's his strength. >> what does he communicate? he can get the crowdsil. he has to be able -- >> greta: he has a
in the books. romney and obama facing off last night in their first presidential debate. among the topics they sparred over, revenue. take a listen. >> there has to be revenue in addition to cuts. now, governor romney has ruled out revenue. he's ruled out revenue. >> absolutely. look, the revenue i get is by more people working, getting higher pay, paying more taxes. that's how we get growth and how we balance the budget. but the idea of taxing people more, putting more people out of work, you'll never get there. >> for reaction from the obama campaign, the co-founder and former ceo of car max, austin leggen joins us from richmond, virginia. austin, good morning to you. >> good morning. how are you? >> good. i'd love to get your take on that specific moment which has been cited by many to be one of romney's most coherent, concise arguments for his view of the role of government. you agree? >> well, it may have been quick and a good sound bite, but it's not very coherent or concise. what he says is growth will give you revenue which will give you growth. i mean, what he's saying is i'll gr
away from thes first presidential debate in denver where mitt romney and barack obama will be trying to reach a shrinking pool of undecided voters. joining me for our daily fix, chris cizilla. the challenges for both. everyone trying to lower expectations but the fact is, that both of these -- both of these debaters are experienced, they both had primary debates but there is a challenge first for mitt romney, he's never gone head-to-head against barack obama and for the president, he has not debated in a while. he didn't have any -- of course didn't have any primary challenges this year. >> right. andrea, i always think it's hilarious, last night in las vegas barack obama said i'm an okay debater. it's like when lou holtz was the coach of notre dame and playing east/west texas state, i don't know, they're pretty strong this year. you have to put it in some context. both of these people as you point out have risen to a point where they are the nominees for president for the parties. neither are bad debaters. they are both able and capable. you're right. look, barack obama hasn't debat
and presidential surrogate in this tough campaign. gentlemen, thank you for joining us. always go to the elected official first. mr. mayor, what needs to be done right now to right this ship, to get obama back on a winning course? >> well, the president is on a winning course and as you laid out earlier, chris, with all the things that mitt romney either lied about or denied about -- what we call that in philadelphia is just lying, denying, and alibiing. and if that's what you're going to spend your time doing and focus on style, then you'll have a pretty decent night. president obama is focused on substance. let me give you three quick numbers here, chris, which i think ultimately is what this election is all about. 31 straight months of job growth here in the united states of america. 5.1 million jobs created in the private sector. and unemployment at 7.8%, the lowest it's been since the president took the oath of office in january of 2009. things are moving in the right direction. this campaign is moving forward. we've got 30 days to go, and we're focused on voter registration, getting our vo
demagoguery from the seventies to obama." are going to talk about that. where do you think the presidential race is right now. guest: mitt romney is looking very good peer that is why in the obama administration did not want to run against mitt romney. he was the most threatening of the candidates. it is very hard to take on an incumbent. it has only happened -- republicans have only done at one time in the last few years. is in the last time it happened when clinton took out bush? it is curious, for example, there were 70 million viewers of that debate the other night, the highest it has been since 1992, the last time an incumbent was taken out. that is because people are uncomfortable with obama, but if they are not political knocks, like we are, they have not been paying attention, or have not been watching the debates and the just want to see who the challenger is and whether they are comparable with him. after monday night, everybody is pretty comfortable with mitt romney. >> i was reading back on your twitter feed. back in february you were saying conservatives should support mitt rom
wasn't worthy of his time or attention in this presidential election. gregg: sean, let me go to you. earlier this month a cnn poll found governor romney leads president obama among likely independent voters by a substantial 14 points. 54%, look at this, to 40%. he also leads among independents in critical swing states like ohio and florida, and yet, "u.s. news & world report" points out there has been almost no mention of it in the media. i wonder why? >> well, i think what you are starting to see is that independents are largely part of the 60% of americans that think this country is off on the wrong track and right now that they are giving a stark contrast to what this election presents in terms of more government centered country or a free enterprise system that governor romney offers, one that rewards innovation and entrepreneurship. but the bigger thing that you also see in the numbers is, in eight of 12 battleground states the democrats really lost a lot of voter registration. when you look at battle ground states, in 2008, president obama won state like wisconsin by 14 points
that it could still swing back after the next debate. we have the vice-presidential debate coming up on thursday but the bigger one will be following week at hofstra university when mitt romney and president obama go head-to-head again. that is different kind of format. the town hall format. president and mitt romney will talk to individual voters asking questions, that may be a better format for the president. jon: but it does seem that states like ohio and nevada are getting tighter, and you know, with, well the election is four weeks from tomorrow. if that momentum holds for the romney team, it could really be a surprising turn around come election day? >> it certainly could. of course the romney campaign and republican national committee did a big turnout drive this past weekend. they have been doing a lot of that. we've seen it, we've seen it more from democrats. they have been exposing some of their organizational advantages all summer long. we're just now seeing how much the romney campaign is doing in some of these states. you're right, it absolutely could turn around. until we see romne
president obama. and as you point out, it was widely covered at the time. he was an announced presidential candidate. so there was nothing secret about this on-camera, open-press event. >> but mike, did the media fail to cover it completely? did it leave out parts that would have been harmful to president obama, which is the argument made by the daily caller? >> yeah, i think in any speech like this, you're going to do it selectively. and apparently, then-senator obama departed notably from his text, maybe a lot of the stories were done. but what we're seeing, willie, here is a video that's designed to play to the republican base, to remind them that whatever they think about mitt romney, he's better than barack obama, if you're a hard-right conservative republican. so this is to get them to stick with their choice and to turn out. >> and then quickly on the paul ryan video. what do you make of that? he says only 70% of americans want the american dream. the other 30% want the welfare state. >> willie, if you listen to the whole tape, what i took away from it is that mitt romney would be a
, president obama is starting to get his edge, we're back in the place now, a surprising place to be this year. and the next couple of debates, the vice presidential debate next week, they will take on added significance, i really didn't think we would be here at this point in the campaign. >> and i'm going to say, just in bottom line, i said it just got really interesting this week. there was sort of a trend, and i think there were a lot of people out there putting predictions prior to this past week, and now look where we are. but eleanor, you said mitt romney was skilled in mixing facts with falsehoods, and did little last night to create a bond of trust with the people. his glib, even slick performance may score with the debate coaches, but the american people may not be similarly wowed. do you still feel that today? >> yes, the fact checkers are still all over mitt romneys, reversing some of his ideas, and his key proposals. so i think he is paying a price for not having formed a bond of trust with the american people earlier in this campaign. the fact that he -- convention was a missed o
-policy speech, mitt romney said president obama is passive in the middle east. and it is time to change course in the region. he spoke at the virginia military institute in lexington, virginia. foreign policy will be the focus of the third presidential debate. this is 30 minutes. [applause] >> thank you. thank you ladies and gentlemen. it is an honor for me to be here with all of you. the great cadets at military -- but in a military institute. the bad news is i was here in spring for a parade in amnesty but no such luck today. i want to thank the general for his amazing leadership. i am sure you agree we are raising up a tremendous new class of young men and women that will lead this military and this nation going forward. i appreciate his work as well as congressman goodlatte. vmi is the oldest state- supported military institution in the united states and i would say the best. since its founding, this institution has been incredibly dedicated to the cause of honor and service. vmi has produced some of the finest officers that the military has known and during its nearly two centuries of ser
reputation, as you know. i look forward to working with barack obama and playing a very constructive role in his presidency, bringing about the kind of change this country needs. >> we will have more from the 2004 debate along with three other vice presidential debates -- it is all starting at 7:00 p.m. eastern here on c-span. >> the first and only vice presidential debate takes place this week. watch engage with cspan as joe biden and paul ryan meet this thursday, october 11, in kentucky. our previous starts at 7:00 p.m. eastern and at 9:00, martha raddatz moderate the 90-minute debate with questions focusing on foreign and domestic policy. post-debate, of your reactions and comments. follow our live coverage on cspan, cspan radio, and on line at c-span.org. >> cspan's campaign 2012 web site provides live and on demand coverage all the presidential and vice presidential debates. it is the only place where you will see our live coverage of behind-the-scenes sights and sounds before and after the debates. we have each debate question separated by topic. watch your creative clips and read a
